CARL M. FELTS 

Principal 

Greetings from our beloved principal: 

"Seniors of 1953, during the past twelve years your interests have been my interests. I 
have been interested in your efforts. I know you have ambition and enthusiasm, but my message 
to you is to strive to always have a strength of purpose and character enough to push on to the 
successful completion of your goal in life. It will be a supreme delight to you in seeing "a job 
well done." 

"Strive to keep the spirit of helpfulness and earnest endeavor that characterizes our school; 
dare to dream of the future and strike boldly to make those dreams come true. Keep your principles 
high and clean, for as in all life 'principle is the principal thing'." 

"Wonderful oppormnities are yours. While my generation has seen great changes, your 
generation will see miraculous changes in mankind. Explore these new frontiers boldly and 
courageously; for this is your opportunity, vour hope, and your joy." 



KING'S CABIN 



// 



In keeping with the original name of our town, we have chosen KING'S CABIN 
as the title of our 1953 yearbook. 

We are especially indebted to Mr. Theodore Newsome for the historical facts and 
the-background herewith presented. 

Many veterans from the Revolutionary War passed through Stokes County and 
many settled here. Among those who settled here was a man by the name of Charles 
King. He built a little log cabin near where the home of A. S. Francis now stands. 
It was for this man that the little town was called King. 

With the coming of a railroad through King in 1887, the town began to grow. 
Mark Chopplin opened the first store in King. It stood just north of the railroad crossing 
near Mr. Francis's home. The first post office was located in Chopplin's store. This store 
was the center of town for many years. 

Soon after a railway station was built by the Grabs Brothers and the people of the 
community. The post office was moved near the station. About this time we got our 
first doctor. Dr. Jacob Knight came to King from Colfax. He lived in a small log 
house which stood just across the road from the O. L. Rains home. 

Before we got a doctor the town had a school, which was a one-room log cabin 
and stood near the home of Mrs. P. W. Gunter. Wince Fulton was the first teacher. In 
1904 the school district known as Hardluck and Hustler was consolidated into the King 
School district, and a new frame building was erected. In 1909 this two-room building 
was jacked up and two rooms were put underneath the old rooms. This was the year 
King High School was established with Professor Coggins as principal. F. T. Smith was 
the county superintendent. This was the first public high school in Stokes County. 

About 1911 a new frame building was erected where the present baseball diamond 
is located. There was no auditorium, so for commencement programs, the teachers 
marchd the children down to the Old Tabernacle, a large circular building which was 
used for all public meetings at that time. Several years later an auditorium and more 
rooms were added to the building. 

The following were at the head of the school during these periods: 1911-12, Bivens; 
1913-15, Hiatt; 1915-17, A. R. Phillips; 1917-18, Britt; 1918-22, T. T. Smith: 1922-24, 
H. A. Carroll; 1924-25, G. C. Bush; 1925-27, H. A. Carroll; 1927-32, C. C Carroll; 
1932-to present, C. M. Felts. 

In 1928 the present modern brick school building was erected. Later came a new 
gymnasium, agriculture building, home economics building and a lunch room. 

In September 1952 we, the four high school grades, entered our new modern brick 
building. We feel it is to the advantage of both grades and high school to have separate 
buildings; and the class of '53, deem it a privilege to be the first graduates from the 
new building.

CLASS HISTORY 



Fifty-eight boys and girls enjoyed the summer of 1949 and 
looked forward to the opening of school in the fall. This opening 
marked their entrance into high school and another step in their 
growing up. 

The day came and everyone gathered in the auditorium for 
the usual routine of opening day. The Freshmen, feeling very 
important, awaited their turn to learn who their teachers were. 
Many were disappointed to find the girls would have their home 
room in the economics building with Mrs. Patterson and the boys 
would be with Mr. Fowler in the science room. 

When they were settled down they eleaed class officers and 
grade parents. Officers in Mrs. Patterson's room were "Diddy" 
Caudle, President; Mary Ruth Johnson, Vice-President; Barbara 
Southern, Secretary, and Grace Westmoreland, Treasurer. 

After the gay days of the Freshmen year they again enjoyed 
the summer months and returned in the fall of 1950 for their 
second year of high school. 

There were fifty-two students this year and the home room 
teachers were Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. Duncan. Officers eleaed 
in Mrs. Patterson's room were Mary Smith, President; Mary 
Ruth Johnson, Vice-President; Diddy Caudle, Secretary and 
Treasurer; and June Sisk, Reporter. In Mrs. Duncan's room they 
were Charles Westmoreland, President; Naomi Wall, Vice- 
President; Doris Barr, Secretary; Marvin Gentry, Treasurer; and 
Wilma Covington, Reporter. 

The two Sophomore classes were represented in the Student 
Council by Doris Edwards, Jack Booze, Barbara Southern, and 
Hight Ferguson. 

Mr. O. W. Sisk and Mrs. W. E. Westmoreland were grade- 
parents for Mrs. Patterson's class. This class enjoyed a nice trip 
to Raleigh, visiting the capitol, governor's mansion, and other 
places of interest. 

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Nicholson and Mr. and Mrs. Worth 
Gentry were elected gradeparents in Mrs. Duncan's class. They 
gave the group a very merry party at Christmas time. 

Doris Barr, recording secretary in the Smdent Council meet- 
ings and June Sisk, treasurer, enjoyed a trip to Hendersonville 
for a Northwestern Smdent Council Conference during their 
Sophomore year. 

May Day was a gay occasion for the high school. The Sopho- 
mores were represented in the May Court by Doris Barr and 
Mary Smith, and other Sophomore girls participated in the pro- 
gram and Maypole dance. 

Forty-two of these boys and girls passed from the Sophomore 
year int otheir Junior year. The boys and girls will always carry 
many fond memories of those Junior Days. 

Mrs. Stevens was the Junior home room teacher and the 
Junior's home room was the library. Officers of this year were 
Mary Smith, President; Charles Westmoreland, Vice-President; 
Barbara Southern, Recording Secretary; Diddy Caudle, Corre- 
sponding Secretary; Marvin Gentry, Treasurer; June Sisk, Reporter. 
Gradeparents elected were Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Sisk and Mr. and 
Mrs. Worth Gentry. They gave the Juniors a happy New Year's 
Eve paty and presented the Junior Class with two nice picmres, 
which now hang in the library of the new high school building. 



Barbara Southern and "Diddy" Caudle won first place for theit 
fine playing in the talent show held in November. Mary Smith 
and Mildred Nance won first place for their singing. Several of 
the Junior girls prepared boxes to be sold for the benefit of the 
Student Council. 

The Juniors worked zealously in preparing the gymnasium for 
the annual Halloween Carnival. Mary Ruth Johnson, a Junior 
class member, was crowned harvest queen. Everyone enjoyed the 
carnival and the Juniors were quite proud of their work. 

Both the Juniors and Seniors looked forward to the Junior- 
Senior Banquet which was held at the Robert E. Lee Hotel on 
May 9, 1952. Everyone appeared looking their best and thoroughly 
enjoyed the fine food and entertainment provided. 

At class night, during commencement, the Juniors carried 
a chain made of field daisies. On the night of the baccalaureate 
sermon many Juniors sang with the Glee Club. Marshals for 
commencement were Barbara Southern, chief; Geraldine Lankford, 
Doris Barr, "Diddy" Caudle, and Naomi Wall. 

The new high school building was completed and the boys and 
girls who had begun their high school days in 1949 now entered 
the new new building to complete their high school days. Mrs. 
J. Colvin Brown is our home room teacher, 1953 and '54. 

The following Senior officers were elected: Mary Smith, Presi- 
dent; Doris Barr, Vice-President; Barara Southern, Recording Sec- 
retary; "Diddy" Caudle, Corersponding Secretary; Jack Booze, 
Treasurer; and Doris Edwards, Reporter. Marvin Gentry and 
Doris Barr represents the Senior Class at the Smdent Council 
meetings. 

The Senior Class went to Raleigh to see Sonja Henie's Ice 
Revue. They were thrilled with the show and had a very joyous 
trip. 

What can be more exciting than the Senior Play? The Seniors 
of 1952-53 presented He Couldn't Take It, a three act comedy, 
on December 4, 1952. It was a great success. Mrs. Brown was 
director. 

The Seniors were given two nice parties at Halloween and 
Christmas by their gradeparents, Mr. and Mrs. T. W. McGee and 
Mr. and Mrs. Debs Holder. 

On February 11, 1953 the Senior Class enjoyed a trip to Elon 
College. Mr. Lindler went with the Seniors on this trip. They 
enjoyed the basketball game between Elon and High Point. 

The Senior girls studying dictation and transcription organized 
a business girls society known as the Puellae Negoti Socii. Of- 
ficers elected were Barbara Southern, President; Naomi Wall, 
Vice-President; June Sisk, Recording Secretary; Margaret Booez, 
Corresponding Secretary; Mrs. Newsom was their advisor. These 
girls had a nice banquet on February 12, at which each member 
invited a graduate to tell of her work as a secretary. 

As class historians, may we wish each of our Senior classmates 
a very prosperous fumre — and to Mr. Felts and all of our 
teachers through the years, may your memories of this class be 
pleasant as we make our mark in this wonderful land of America.

CLASS PROPHECY 



BY MARGARET LEE BOOZE 



It is December 19, 1959, on the planet Mars. I am secretary 
for the Vice-President of the M. G. M. Studios. We are getting 
ready to blast off for the planet Earth. We are going to visit 
some of my old classmates while on Earth and we shall land in 
New York City and shall visit the Metropolitan Opera House while 
there. When we return to Mars, we shall make a movie about the 
planet Earth. 

As we entered the station platform from our rocketship, we 
were greeted by Mary Smith and her husband. We learned they 
were on their way to visit their parents in King, North Carolina. 
Mary is now teaching American History at the University of 
Maine. 

We learned from Mary that Jessie Merritt is now a successful 
hair designer in Boston, Massachusetts. We learned that Jessie 
is not married as yet, but she is planning to wed a Vice-President 
of the United States Steel Company in April. 

As we entered our car on the train, whom should we meet but 
Charles Westmoreland. He told us he is now pitching for the 
New York Yankees. He won 19 games last season and only lost 
one game. We also learned he is married to a famous concert 
singer. 

As we came into Pittsburgh, I saw someone I knew, but I 
could not recall who she was. After we left the train, I remem- 
bered — Edna Ncwsom. I contacted her and learned she is a 
basketball coach for a high school in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 
She is planning to marry Bobby Gravitt when he gets out of the 
Army. Bobby joined the Army for four years, and he is now 
stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska, doing some research work for the 
government. He will be home in about three months. 

Edna informed us that Annie Belle Priddy is the wife of the 
Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland. Annie Belle is her husband's pri- 
vate secretary in Baltimore, Maryland. 

As we boarded our rocketship for Chicago, we saw Jack Watts, 
who was to be our pilot. He told us he enjoyed his flying very 
much. He has not had an accident as yet, but he has come close 
many times. Jack is not married. 

Jack told us that our stewardess was going to be Wilma Cov- 
ington. As we went into the passengers' quarters, we saw Wilma. 
We learned she is married to the son of the American Airlines 
President. She enjoys her flying and has made many trips to gay 
Paris. 

While she was in Paris, she saw "Diddy" Caudle who is an ex- 
pert in designing clothes for teen-agers. We learned that in 
"Diddy's" spare time she teaches piano. "Diddy" has never mar- 
ried, but she is very hopeful about a tall, dark, and handsome 
artist in France. 

When we arrived in Chicago, we went to a hotel for the night. 
There we were surprised to see Naomi Wall. Naomi is now sing- 
ing for a big television program of her own. 

Naomi told us that Grace Johnson is still living in North 
Carolina with her husband, who is owner of a dry cleaning busi- 
ness in King, North Carolina. Grace is the mother of a two year 
old girl, Kitty. Grace is an accountant for her husband. 

Tonight we are dining in a ritzy restaurant in Chicago. As 
we entered I saw none other than Jack Booze who was enter- 
taining a blond. He told us that his blond was only a model 
for his agency. Jack is the President of a huge model agency in 
Cincinnati, Ohio, and is married to his childhood sweetheart. 

Jack told us that Billy Wilson is still living in Winston-Salem. 
He is secretary to the Business Manager of the Reynolds Tobacco 
Company and is expecting a promotion in about two weeks. 

After leaving the restaurant, we hailed a taxi. We were sur- 
prised to see Betty Jean Boyles coming down the street with a 
handsome man, who was her husband. He is a successful architea. 
Betty Jean is a private secretary to the president of Swift and 
Company. 

Betty Jean told us that Audrey Browder and Martha Ann Barrow 
are partners in a big department store in Detroit, Michigan. They 
are not married as yet. 

As we boarded our rocketship this morning for Denver, Colo- 



rado, we saw Mary Ruth Johnson, along with many other beauties. 
Mary Ruth told us she is Miss King, Miss North Carolina, and 
she hopes to be Miss America, after tomorrow's contest. 

We learned that Barbara Lawson is still living in King with 
her husband, who is a Vice-President of the McLean Trucking 
Company. She has a three year old son, Timmy. 

We arrived in Denver, and as we were about to leave the 
rocketship, someone called to us from a nearby taxi. It was none 
other than Becky" Watts and her husband, Dan Nance, and their 
two year old girl, Jenny. Dan is now an executive in Colorado. 
Dan is part owner of a chain of hotels all over the United States. 
"Becky" keeps house for Dan and the children. 

When we arrived at our hotel, we were told someone was wait- 
ing to see us. They were magazine reporters and they wanted a 
picture for their magazine, Colliers. They were Rex Holder and 
Reginald Kiser. They have been reporters for five years and 
have been all over the world writing stories and interviewing 
important people. 

We learned from Rex that Alvin Watts and Theodore Fulk 
have been in Mexico two years teaching the Mexicans the Ameri- 
can way of farming through a recipocal agriculture program. 

As we entered Hollywood in a taxi, we were happy to see 
Doris Barr and Marvin Gentry, who were about to enter M. G. M. 
Studios. Doris graduated from Wingate College and is now a 
leading lady in a new picture. Marvin is her leading man. Marvin 
graduated from Harvard in 1956. He has starred in two movies. 

Marvin told us that William Covington is now Governor of 
North Carolina, but "Bud" has never found himself a wife to 
be his first lady in the governor's mansion. 

Doris told us that Doris Edwards and "Wimp" Holder have 
been married since 1955. "Wimp " has replaced Mr. Neal as bas- 
ketball coach at King. His team is undefeated thus far this season. 
Doris is housekeeping for her husband and her little son, Ricky. 

After taking care of the mail that had piled up during our 
visit, my boss told me I could have a two weeks' vacation. 

I boarded a rocketship for North Carolina. As I stepped off 
the rocketship in Winston-Salem, I saw June Sisk and her husband, 
who is a dentist in New Orleans. They had just been married. 
June told me they were on their way to the Hawaiian Islands for 
a honeymoon. After their honeymoon, they plan to live in New 
Orleans. 

As I entered King on a passenger train, I noticed a new sign 
on a door. Doctor Geraldine Lankford — Osteopath. I went in 
and sure enough, there was Geraldine giving a treatment for 
rheumatism and other aches and pains to a patient. 

I learned that Barbara Southern is a criminal lawyer in Char- 
lotte. She is married to her childhood sweetheart. Barbara has 
not as yet lost a case. She is a very good lawyer. Maybe she will 
be another Portia Blake. 

Betty Sue Southern and her husband are living on a big 
plantation in South Carolina. They are very successful in their 
farming. There are three little girls and "nary" a Carl, Jr., in sight. 

I learned that Allene Newsom is operating a cosmetics depart- 
ment in King, North Carolina. She is a very successful hair 
designer. 

As I was about to leave King, I saw Marvin Turtle. Marvin 
told me he is owner of six theaters in North Carolina. He is 
living up to his superlativp "Old Bachelor" but he is forgetting 
it very soon. 

Mrvin told me that Jones Burroow and Nolan Redding are 
farmers. Nolan is a poultry dealer. He has about fifty thousand 
fowls. Jones is a beef -cattle dealer. He has about 1000 head of 
cattle. 

I learned that Hight Ferguson is General Manager of a Beach 
Resort in Miami, Florida. Hight married his childhood sweetheart 
in 1955. They have been living in Florida, since then. His wife 
is a private secretary. Hight is a little theater actor in his spare 
time. 

When I arrived back on Mars, I was very happy to have visited 
dear old King Hi and the planet Earth again.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT 

We, the Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-Three, of King High School, in the 
county of Stokes, the State of North Carolina, being of sound mind, and realizing impending 
departure from this school, do hereby declare and make this our last will and testament. 

To the school we leave the fond hope that it will improve as the years go by and that 
other seniors will perform in a more dignified manner than we have. 

To the faculty; To Mr. Felts: A pair of roller skates and a paved walk to be used on his 
daily trips to the high school building. To Mrs. Brown: A warmer room and, too, a bouquet of 
red roses for the unrequited love and friendship bestowed upon us during our school days. 
To Mrs. Stevens: A copy of "Robinson Crusoe" and "My Friend, Flicka" — she needs new 
copies for we've read and reported on them every year since the ninth grade. To Mrs. Newsom: 
A Ph.D. degree in 'Jack of All Trades," for anything we ask her to do — she can do. To Mr. 
Neal: Twins — each weighing 176 pounds and the ability to shoot with either hand — two more 
Bobby Joe's would clinch all championships. To Mrs. Shore: A "bulldozer" to push the Home 
Economics building a little closer to the new high school for it is inconvenient to have to go 
to the post office to get announcements of faculty meetings. To Mr. Lindler: A key to his 
desk drawer so the "most competent" pupils will not be able to sneak a copy of the test to 
pass around. To Mr. Underwood: A NEW convertible and a New parking lot at the NEW 
building. To Mr. Randal: A third year agricultural class that prefers working to sleeping. 
To Mrs. Gentry: A Glee Club that can get to class on time. To Mr. Turtle: Some more green 
compound, a little wax, and someone to push the chairs back in place — he has three boilers 
to fire and needs a co-helper. 

To the Juniors: Jessie Merritt wills her superlative, Most Polite, to Jean Calloway. 
Wilma Covington wills to Patsy Moorefield her title as "cutest" in hope that she can capture 
the honor in her Senior year. Naomi Wall wills her shorthand pad to Norma Jean Burrow 
and her dictation and transcription book to Jolene Davis. Betty Sue Southern wills her position 
as cashier in the lunchroom to Juanita Duggins and her superlative. Most Loyal, to Ilene 
Kiser. Geraldine Lankford wills her Reader's Digest to Shirley Turner. Jack Booze his superlatives.

wills to Ray James his wit in hope that he can keep the rising Senior class amused. Jones 
Burrow wills his superlative, Biggest Baby, to Grady Watts. Bobby Gravitt wills being the biggest 
wolf to Keith Johnson. Audrey Browder wills to Patsy Shelton her wittiness so she can keep the 
Senior class in laughter. Martha Ann Burrow wills her superlative. Most Bashful, to Janet 
Shouse. Annie Belle Priddy wills her chair in Economics to Elsie Lankford. June Sisk wills 
her position of recording secretary of the Student Council to Barbara Long and her car keys 
to Sherman Petree so he can go to the bank. Mary Smith wills her privilege to speak her 
mind to Betty Watts so the Senior class will have someone to express their opinions. Barbara 
Southern wills to Wesley Hunsucker her "love" for Economics and to Wesley and Ethel Burrow 
all her book reports so they won't have to spend their Senior year reading. "Wimp" Holder 
wills his superlative, Most Athletic" to Bobby Joe Harris. Margaret Booze wills to Barbara 
Thomas her superlative. Biggest Flirt, and to Clarence Hall her Latin book. Doris Edwards wills 
her position as treasurer of the Student Council to Melva Boyles. Edna Newsom wills to Nancy 
Boyles her superlative, Most Athletic. Barbara Lawson wills to Jenny Lee Turtle and Shirley 
Lawson her ability to fry eggs. Marvin Turtle wills to Jocie Lewis his big brown eyes so she 
will have four to help her keep up with the scoring at the ball games. Grace Johnson wills her 
practice set in bookkeeping to Bettina Newsom and her pen and ink to Mary Lee Venable. Rebecca 
Watts wills to Faye Sizemore and Vonnie Slate her recipe for holding a man. Betty Jean Boyles 
wills her superlative. Quietest, to .Violet Stewart. 'Diddy" Caudle wills her "DO RA ME" ability 
to Bonnie Venable. Hight Ferguson wills to Curtis Brown his ability to attract the opposite sex. 
Nolan Redding wills his geometry book to Richard Norman. Jack Watts wills his superlative. 
Most Original, to Norman Venable. Doris Jane Barr wills her hair style to Harold Voss. Allene 
Newsom wills her superlative. Friendliest, to Elsie Fulk and Ineida Fulk. William Covington 
wills his position as president of the Student Council to Ann Phillips. Mary Ruth Johnson 
wills her superlative. Prettiest, to Mary Ruth Spainhour. Charles Westmoreland wills his white 
turtle-neck sweater to David Bennett. Alvin Watts wills his superlative. Most Bashful, to 
Charles Fulk. Rex Holder wills his superlative. Most Musical, to Clyde Jennings. Marvin Gentry 
wills his superlative, Most Intelligent, to Billy Jessup, in hopes that he can graduate next year. 
Theodore Fulk wills his superlative, Quietest, to Voyt Jones. Billy Wilson wills his ability 
to come to school, hold a job, and get married to Jimmy Moser and James Burrow. Dan Nance 
wills his superlative. Most Likely to Marry, to Elbert Jessup. 

To this will, we, the class of 1953, do set our hands and seal. 
Witnesses: Mary Smith — Jack Booze.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL 

"You are invited to a Get Acquainted Tea", was the first social event of the 
school year. The student council officers graciously presided as host to the faculty, 
P.-T. A. officers, and the grammar grade student council officers on this occasion 
in the new high school library. 

At the first meeting, Mrs. Newell Newsom was elected adviser for the third 
consecutive year, and committee chairmen were appointed along with a teacher 
adviser for each committee. 

The student council arranged all assembly programs for this school year. High- 
lights — with the spotlight on vocations — have been programs from the following 
professions: Medical doctors, secretaries, florists, drama, newspaper reporting, law, 
dentistry, nursing, ministry, armed service, teaching, agriculture, salesmen, and 
several others. We thinlt these programs have been of great help to the pupils 
in our school. 

The "Talent Show" in November was quite successful; the participants from 
other schools in our County helped to make it a real "treat". 

"A "sale of Reader's Digest" subscriptions was also sponsored in November, 
from which we received a nice profit. 

"Open House" was held in November during American Education Week. 
Refreshments were served to parents and visitors in the Home Ec. building. 

The "Boy and Girl of the Month" selection was made during the year by the 
student council — to the present date these boys and girls have received that honor: 
Richard Holder, Carolyn Hendrlx, William Covington, Doris Jane Barr, Robert 
Robertson, Geraldine Lankford, Bobbie Joe Harris, and Edna Newsom. 

Because of lack of interest in his duties, J. Lee Johnson was replaced by Lind- 
say Robertson as a ninth grade representative early in the year. 

We sold "school color basketball pins" for our first ball game, declaring that 
day as "Color Day." Every pupil and teacher wore something "red and black" 
for the occasion. 

Our council supplied the fruit that was served at basketball games by our 
cheerleaders. 

At Christmas, with all high school rooms participating, we remembered 
several families with huge boxes of "Christmas cheer." 

Again this year, the council members showered the basketball teams with 
towels to be used after games. The response for these towels was very gratifying. 

Our council has been responsible for the attractively-kept bulletin board in 
the gym and, too, for all the colorful decorations used for each game. 

June Sisk and Anne Phillips are to be complimented for their conscientious 
effort in writing "King Kracks" for our county papers. 

The student council was quite honored this year at Christmas time for the 
opportunity of being host to the Stokes County Student Council at a Christmas 
banquet, served by the King American Legion Auxiliary. 

Elsie Lankford is to be commended for her efforts in attempting to keep 
the halls quiet. 

We appointed a grounds committee to work with the P.-T. A. committee for 
the improvement of our grounds surrounding our new building. 

The high school social, "A Valentine Party," was sponsored by the student 
council social committee in February at Vade Mecum. 

The student council has been responsible for the many and attractive bulletin 
boards at the entrance of the high school buUding. 

A worn American Flag wa.s burned in a very impressive ceremony sponsored 
by our council in February. 

At this writing the council president, William Covington, is being bombarded 
with questions about whether or not we will have Homecoming Day, May Day, 
and a high school outdoor outlns.

THE COMMERCIAL CLUB 

These boys and girls will be doing their share in the business world very soon. Many of 
our boys who have graduated hold responsible office positions in the armed services and 
elsewhere; you will find our girls in most all vocations of life — and they are all doing quite 
well, too.

TRIBUTE TO KING HIGH SCHOOL 

BY MILVIN SOUTHERN BENNETT 
Ours is the best high school in the land. 
Divided we'd fall; but united we stand. 
We'll be loyal to the end. 
On that, King High, you can depend. 
Oh, dear old King High, we love you; we always will. 
When we've grown old, we'll think of you still. 
While our children live again. 
The days that we once spent here. 

We have a team that really is great. 
One that is free from hard feelings and hate. 
When our team walks on the floor. 
You can hear the fans all roar, 
"Rah! Rah! Rah! Come on. King High, 

We know you can win; because you have won again and again. 
If you lose, a smile you'll wear, 
'Cause you know the game was fair." 

- Our Eagle stands so sure and so free; 

He is a symbol of our loyalty. 
Never wil we lose the trust, 
That you. King High, have placed in us. 
And then, when we have left and gone on our way. 
We will forever hope and we'll pray, 
Though we're leaving, we'll ne'er forget. 
The lessons that we learned here.

Shelton, Kay Long. Mrs. Newsom is cheerleader sponsor.

"RED and BLACK" 

"Don't let the stars get in your eyes," has been the refrain floating over the campus for 
the past few weeks, the reason being, the once defeated King High School girls' basketball team. 

This high-stepping, sharp-shooting, defensively clad basketball team began picking up steam 
last October at the first practice. We were happy to learn that Mr. Neal would be the girls' 
coach this year. Those returning from Mrs. Voss's excellent team of last year were Edna Newsom, 
Melva Boyles, Margaret Booze, Doris Edwards, Mary Ruth Johnson, Grace W. Johnson, Doris 
Jane Barr, Mary E. Smith, Nancy Boyles, and Faye Sizemore. Kay Carroll, Ann Spainhour, Mary 
Ruht Spainhour, and Violet Stewart were the new ones on the team. 

This group of girls after patient coaching from Mr. Neal and determination on their part 
soon developed into what some people say is the best King team since 1938. The King sextet 
has won the Stokes County title for the past six years, and because of their fine record up to 
the present time, they are again favored to cop the Stokes County Crown. The only loss of the 
season was to a strong Pilot Mountain team, whom they later defeated 29-14. 

Captaining the team are Edna Newsom, a powerful guard, and Mary Ruth Johnson, who 
is a star at forward or guard. Newsom, along with Melva Boyles and Margaret Booze, make 
up one of the finest defensive units in the state. Along with the reserve guards, they held 
Walkertown, a high scoring team, without a field goal the entire game. King winning 28-10. 

Johnson teams with Mary Edith Smith and Nancy Jo Boyles to give the team a high geared 
offense. Boyles is one of the finest all-round forwards in the Northwest. Smith will probably 
develop into one of the most powerful forwards that King has ever had. Grace Johnson is to be 
congramlated for being able to step right into Mary Ruth Johnson's position and carry on for 
King High. Doris Jane Barr's ability to pass the ball to the place it's needed has meant victory 
in many games, and Doris Edwards along with the other capable reserves has made our team 
the best in Stokes County. 

Much of the credit for the success of the team must go to Mr. Neal, one of the best coaches 
in the Northwest. Mr. Felts, who was always ready with suggestions and who substituted for 
Mr. Neal while he was sick, also had a part in the building of the team. Mrs. Newsom, lady adviser, 
has helped out with her encouragement and constructive criticism. The managers, Jocie Lewis 
and Oleita Barnes, have kept the team "chewing" and have been very co-operative in keeping 
the dressing rooms clean. 

"Shoot 'em high; shoot 'em low! Come on girls, let's go! We want the Stokes County Crown 
— Seven in a row." b 

Jocie Lewis, Manager; Mary Spainhour, Violet Stewart, Edna Newsom, Nancy Jo Boyles, 
Margaret Booze, Kay Carrol, Mr. Neal, Coach; Grace Westmoreland, Mary E. Smith, Melva Sue 
Boyles, Anne Spainhour, Doris Edwards, Doris Jane Barr, Oleta Barnes, Manager.

"EAGLES" 



King Hi boys will shine tonight 
King Hi will shine — " 

And that is exactly what the King High boys have done in the twenty games played to date. 
Our Eagles have "burned up the hardwood" in Northwest North Carolina this year with a 
seventy-point average per game. 

Coach Odell Neal's high-scoring, "high-soaring" Eagles racked up 119 points in one victory. 
Pacing the attak this year has been high-scoring Bobby Joe Harris, and captain, Richard "Wimp" 
Holder, with Robert Robertson, the long shot artist of the team, adding points when most needed. 

Dance Nance along with Wimp Holder has maintained a stronghold under all opponents' 
baskets, and dependable Wesley Hunsucker, "the four point man," has aided the undefeated 
Eagles defensively. 

"Oh, yes. Coach Odell Neal's done it again, " says Mr. and Mrs. Basketball Fan of the 
Northwest, and the patrons and pupils of King Hi are really quite proud of the coach of the 
'Red and Black" teams. 

Rounding out the roster for the Eagles has been Marvin Gentry, senior; sophomore Joe 
Bolejack, Don Robertson, and James Lawson; and freshmen Don Boyles, Richard Westmoreland 
have been favored this year to take over when the "big Eagles" needed a rest. 

Carrying towels, rubbing "Charley Horses," and holding jackets has kept managers 
' Smitty" Smith and "Rose" Baker quite busy — and they've done a good job, too! 

Guiding the Eagles during Mr. Neal's illness was Mr. Collins, our eighth grade teacher, 
who performed in the true "Stokes County Collins' Manner." 

C-o-me-e o-n EAGLES! We want the Stokes County Championship to make it six in a row, 
and if you don't mind, just add the State Race Crown to your accomplishments. Yea! TEAM.

REMEMBER WHEN? 

Way back in 1941 

We entered grade school one by one. 

"What's your name?" asked Miss New 
"Here are some toys and little books, too." 

Miss Hutchens stopped our cries and frowns. 
And sent us up to Garner, Gentry and Brown. 

Oh, yes, Mrs. Jones taught us to sing. 

And Miss Sprinkle took us for walks in the spring. 

Mrs. Kiser, Mrs. Gentry and Mrs. Lawson taught us geogra-phy. 
Mrs. Slate and Mrs Moore tried the same with his-to-ry 

In the Sixth grade Mrs Lawson gave us candy, 

And Mrs. Lewis told us stories — a few were quite dandy. 

Mrs. Kiser taught some the right way to write, 
Miss Helsabeck gave fractions that kept us up nights. 

In the Eighth grade Mrs. Duncan took us to Wachovia Museum. 
While Mr. Garner fired our stove underneath the gym. 

Yes, we Seniors of '53 are bidding you 'Goodbye." 

We shall never forget you — we could not break that tie.
